About the book

Yes, we have here yet another periodical on the Vedic Culture, whose riches seem inexhaustible. For apart from the humility Dirghatamas expresses, we meet many ideas of deep philosophical import as in 3.54.8 which states that the One rules the entire manifest multiplicity; or in 3.55 where the refrain states that single (ekam) is the great god-power tasuratvami of the gods, and so on. We meet also the concept of Natural Law or Course of Nature (rta) maintaining order in the Cosmos; also aspects of astronomy, medicine, metallurgy and crafts like pottery, weaving etc. We have, moreover, one of the oldest and richest languages of humanity reflecting as no other language does the order seen and praised in Nature with its dhatus and their fairly systematic development into nominal declensions and verbal conjugations. And, of course,hymns exhibiting the finest aspects of the poetic art. Max Muller in his History of Ancient Sanskrit Literature (1859) summed it up very simply saying: "no other [Indo-European] language [=culture] has carried off so large a share of the common Aryan heirloom" (p14; our square brackets)."
